-Julio Torres! "My Favorite Shapes."
This is on this Saturday at 10:30 on HBO.
Thank you for performing that for us tonight.
You actually have some big cameos
in the special this Saturday.
Is that correct?
-Yeah, so --
-You can't -- You can't talk about it.
You can't even mention who any of the cameos would be.
-Why on Earth would you bring it up?
No, so I -- We're lucky that some really great actors
are voicing the inner spirits of some of those objects,
because we just needed that. -Yeah.
-Okay, I'll tell you one.
The cactus -- The role of the cactus
went to Lin-Manuel Miranda.
[ Cheers and applause ]
Yeah. Well, yeah.
I DM'd him, being like, "Hi. Can you just be this cactus?
This feels like it should be you."
'Cause it's like, I don't know --
Like, can you think of anyone else
who would play a little cactus
trapped in a little glass container?
[ Laughter ]
-I mean, don't even make me think about this.
[ Laughter ]
Of course not, no. -Yeah.
-Lin-Manuel Miranda. -He solved the problem.
-Are you -- You're very observant with shapes,
I feel with everything.
Are you like that in everything in life?
-I don't know if I'm like that in everything in life.
But I do -- there's something that I've been thinking about,
that I -- it's been bothering me a little bit.
-The letter Q. -Sure.
-You know it. You've seen it. [ Laughter ]
-Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm familiar with it.
-It comes up way too early in the alphabet.
-You know what I'm talking about.
-Yeah. -Yeah.
So the -- it's, like, we're not ready for the Q
by the time we get to the Q.
Because the Q is a -- it's a --
the Q is an avant-garde performer.
The Q should be all the way in the back
with the X and the Y and the Z.
And instead like --
Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about.
-No, yeah. Oh, yeah. [ Laughter ]
It comes too soon. Yes. -It comes too soon --
Because with the W, in the W the alphabet starts experimenting.
[ Laughter ] Right?
In the W the alphabet is like,
"Okay, so I showed you this one, well -- ah." Right?
[ Laughter ]
We need the W to ease into the more obscure act.
"Los Espookys," by the way -- congratulations on the show.
I laugh so hard. -Thank you.
-It is just -- It's a brilliant show.
Also it's on HBO Go or HBO on demand,
whatever you can watch to check out the first season.
And I want to say congratulations
'cause you got picked up for season number two.
-Yes. -Well done, buddy.
[ Cheers and applause ] -Yeah.
-You are one of a kind. Julio Torres, everybody.
[ Cheers and applause ]
